And Bios Urn® featured in it‘s first movie!
French film director, Francis Renaud, filmed the movie Première Ligne (translated as Front Line) at the very beginning of the pandemic, using only a smartphone due to the confinement restrictions that took over our planet.
It follows the story of a nurse, confined during lockdown with her nine-year-old daughter, who sees her daily life completely turned upside down. Watch the trailer here.
It was subsequently nominated at the Polar Cognac film awards and Renaud hopes to send it to the Cannes Festival selection.
We are very proud that our very own Bios Urn® features in the independent movie, which you can watch for free here (only available in French at present).
